China Offers Free IUD Removal to Cries of Outrage



The same Chinese government that has forced IUDs on tens of millions of Chinese women after the birth of their first child has decided that some of these women will be allowed to have a second. Decades of stringently enforced population control policies have caused China’s birth rate to plummet. The result: rapid aging of the population and a shrinking pool of working-age adults.

China’s Population Control Police Should Be Abolished



China’s family planning police are widely hated and feared by the Chinese people. And who can blame them? For the past three and half decades, the family planning police have been the enforcement arm of China’s brutal one-child policy, carrying out the Communist Party’s mandate that couples have no more than one child, or no more than two if the first child was a girl.

A New Dawn of Reproductive Freedom in China?



Washington, D.C.—Under China’s new two-child policy, forced and coercive abortions and sterilizations will continue, according to a panel of experts on China’s one-child policy who testified in a hearing before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) on Capitol Hill last Thursday. Experts believe abuses will continue. Due to 35 years of stringent population control, China’s rapid aging and shrinking labor force could lead Chinese officials to mandate women to increase childbearing. “The same Party officials …

Peruvian Victims Still Wait For Justice



Twenty-five years after hundreds of thousands of women were forcibly or coercively sterilized in Peru, these victims are still waiting for justice. A recent decree issued by the Peruvian Justice Ministry may help these women receive reparation for the crimes committed against them. The politics of abortion is complicating this process, however.
